About Polish Posters:  Beginning in the 1950s and through the 1980s, the Polish School of Posters combined the aesthetics of painting with the succinctness and simple metaphor of the poster. It developed characteristics such as painterly gesture, linear quality, and vibrant colors, as well as a sense of individual personality, humor, and fantasy. It was in this way that the polish poster was able to make the distinction between designer and artist less apparent. 

About this Artist: Wikipedia tell us that: "Urbaniec was a graphical time traveler. In his posters we recognize postcards from various eras. His art is a mixture of different styles. Urbaniec was inspired by history and his work he refers to the interwar avant-garde: geometry combined with photography, colors that are reduced to black, white and red..."
